Following yesterdays game between Wigan Athletic and Birmingham City at the DW Stadium both bosses, Roberto Martinez and Alex McLeish spoke to the press about the game, lets see what they had to say:

Latics boss Roberto Martinez

‘It is difficult to explain how we lost the game, we created chance after chance and dominated the first half.

‘With the football we showed in the first half we should have got something from the game, we were well in control.

‘But we didn’t show character in our play, and too many times this season we have folded in adversity.

‘We reacted in the last 15 minutes, probably more with heart than head, but we need to put our weaknesses right.’

Birmingham boss Alex McLeish

‘We’re showing we belong in Premier League, the players are entitled to feel massively confident because they’ve earned it.

‘Since the start of the season they have been resilient, bounced back from setbacks in any given game, and they’ve got their rewards.

‘I thought we let Wigan bully us a little in the first half, so I asked the players to get a little closer to people and stop them making passes.

‘We were a much more dangerous proposition in the second half, we upped our game and some players took it by the scruff of the neck.

‘I felt if we could get a goal we could go on and win it, and we got what we deserved in the end.’
